Very interesting take on one's singer, & the benifits of draining her/him. Never thought of it that way.

I really enjoyed this. I think your story explains Carlisle's ability to abstain far better than SM's work. I always thought three hundred plus years of Carlisle denying his nature and never having tasted blood was just a little too much to expect. I think you captured his rationalization of his decision/thought processes quite well too. Well done ! Thankyou. )

It makes perfect sense. Surely, in over three hundredsixty-five years, Carlisle must have met his singer and perhaps even had sex with her? Works for me!

Well I never would have expected THAT from the good doctor! Although I do see what he means about sacrificing one life for the good of many others. Quite a conundrum...I can't say I wouldn't have done the same.
Thanks for hooking me up on Twittah!

Very nice! Canon says Carlisle never drank human blood, but it also says he was alone for 250 years before he found Edward, so how do we really know he didn;t slip? It's plausable, and well done!

Read this the other day, and it was very nice.
Carlisle's dilemma always intrigues me. And it was also
quite sexy, although someone died. Loved the way you tied
it into twilight too. Awesome as always.)

Oh, LJ, I LOVED IT!
This, this is the Carlisle that I KNEW was lurking behind that "perfect" facade. (And here, you said that you couldn't write flashbacks... It was awesome.) Am I gushing yet?
And as for not quite being canon...it was better than canon. I love your take on the "singer phenomenon." It makes so much sense. Just so you know, you gave me a cool idea for a story will reading this, so I guess it is the gift that gives twice! :)
Thanks again, sweets.
I hope I can do your story justice after reading this masterpiece. :)
PS. The banner is gorgeous!

I love the way this story is told. I am sure it is a possibility. I love that Carlisle is willing to share this with Edward. His singer - Carlisle's only mistake and he is forever free. I love that he hopes that Edward is stronger than he was. Wonderfully done.

So, no diet tips here... Maybe if I found a chocolate cake that appeals to me more than all others and eat it I'll be cravings free for life...
I must say I didn't think you'd actually have Carlisle do that! But then again, it's you, right? I bet you enjoyed it so much when you wrote it... To be honnest though, I enjoyed very much reading it. I especially appreciated the irony... After I read what you had him do, thinking back at the beginning of your piece, of all the praises and the looking up to him, and Carlisle playing the part of the vampire role model... Hehe!
Saint Carlisle is a bit boring. I like this one better. With this one I can identify.
Gotta go! Have to start looking for my singer chocolate cake!

I LIKED this take, you evil woman, you! Very good one-shot from CPOV. Liked the un-canon twist!

That was cool!
Well, it could have happened...and if it did, I can see it happening like this :)
